Dr. Frank S. Kitson, well known physician of North Manchester, died at the Wabash county hospital Thursday evening at six o'clock. He had been seriously ill the past two months, and was at the hospital several weeks for care. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at three o'clock at the residence on East Third street with the Rev. H.L. Hartsough officiating. Burial was in Oaklawn cemetery.
Dr. Kitson was a son of Allen and Grabille Parker Kitson and was born in North Manchester June 20, 1870. He studied medicine under Dr. M.O. Lower and attended Rush Medical college in Chicago, graduating there in 1895. He had been in constant practice since then in North Manchester, being active at his office most of the time until his last illness. Although not oldest in age, he had practiced medicine in North Manchester longer than any other doctor. Dr. J.L. Warvel is older, but was at Sidney for a number of years. Dr. Kitson helped organize and was a charter member of the Eleventh District medical society, and was also a member of the Wabash county medical society. He was a member of the Church of the Brethren.
He was twice married, his first wife dying fifteen years ago. Later he married Miss Verna Ulrey, who survives. Also surviving are one son, Lower Kitson and four grand children, Allen, Richard, Gloria and Susan Kitson, all of North Manchester.
